Norwegian Breakaway

November 2015 - 12 Night Southern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

Southern Caribbean - Breakaway

Cigarette smell in ship. Beautiful water. Ports smoking restrictions were great! Plan on an hour wait for everything. Bring a watch. Disappointed compared to other ships. Minimum cost for taxi rides per person were $40 no negotiating below the price. Behind the scenes tour was extremely expensive for a ship attraction. Everything is $ on ship. 10 photos for only prints ($160). They had great laundry deals/price and folded very well. Buy a specialty dining pass package ahead of time. The steak and Italian was not worth the price.

PATrip1's Tips

Key West, Florida - Visited classic sites - southern most point, Sloppy Joes (eat),Margaritaville, Hemmingway house, end of Route 1, little White House When docking at Navy pier unable to take pictures.
Miami, Florida - Great public transportation - trolleys and MetroMover are free. Can get to ship from downtown Miami by trolley. No public rest rooms.
HAVANA, CUBA - Pre Cuba stressful to ensure paperwork in place - need Visa when checking in Day One. Only had to show passport for actually entering country. Beautiful country with friendly people. Able to take pictures everywhere and walk around after excursion. No machine guns or military presence. Old cars are a tourist attraction. Typical large city.
Nassau, Bahamas - Enjoyed the glass bottom boat excursion. Sunset cruise was too early to see sunset and same route as glass bottom boat. Environment similar to Bermuda. No public rest rooms.
Empress of the Seas Empress of the Seas - No views from cabin. Old ship. Limited non-structured activities due to small size. No wash days or self-service wash capabilities. No ice cream after 6:00 pm. Good food and dining service. Could request favorite waiters.
New York, New York - Cab ride to and from Penn station $17 metered fare. Leaving ship you will be husseled for more money.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - If you are their on a wednesday visit the Pina colada founing place before 5pm they are closed after. The National Park service free shuttle and forts provide a great view for about $14 combined.
